Phi Theta Kappa Honors UE for Outstanding Transfer Support
Posted: Thursday, June 22, 2023
The University of Evansville (UE) was recently named to the 2023 Transfer Honor Roll by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK) for its support of transfer students as they enroll and work to complete their education. Of the 800 colleges and universities across the nation that were considered, UE was one of just 208 that made the list.
The Transfer Honor Roll is established through the evaluation of 40 key indicators that measure a university's commitment to transfer students as they transition to and succeed at their institutions. These metrics encompass factors such as college expenses, financial aid availability, transfer-friendly campus environment, admission procedures, and successful attainment of bachelor's degrees.
"This recognition underscores our commitment to supporting and empowering transfer students in their educational journeys. We understand the unique challenges these students face and have implemented programs and resources to ensure their success," said UE President Christopher Pietruszkiewicz. "We value their contributions to our campus community, and will continue to be a supportive environment for transfer students."
UE is a natural choice for high achieving transfer students, like PTK members.
"PTK has four core principles: scholarship, leadership, fellowship, and service, and these were ingrained in me as a PTK scholar and are also important to the University of Evansville," said UE transfer student Chloe Prince. "UE offers so many ways for you to continue practicing these values. This was one of the many reasons I chose to attend UE."
Transfers are a growing population of students at the University of Evansville. Their academic talents and abilities are recognized by robust scholarships and financial aid, including a scholarship for PTK members, and special scholarships for students transferring from Ivy Tech Community College and Vincennes University.
